. but there are a ton of these problems in mr. ryan's record. and there's never been a brighter spotlight on it than there was last night. like there was this exchange on the military. >> you don't cut defense by $1 trillion. that's what we're talking about. this invites weakness. look, do we believe in peace through strength? you bet we do. >> devastating cuts on our military. when paul ryan condemns defense cuts as a nefarious democratic idea that he is fighting valiantly against he did not mention he voted in favor of those exact same defense cuts. also on the issue of medicare, i mean, maybe it's been said enough now that it doesn't need to be said every time, but once again at the debate paul ryan pounded his chest and criticized democrats for a change in medicare funding that he's denouncing on the campaign trail. last night as a $716 billion cut to medicare. well, that's a cut to medicare that he put in his own paul ryan budget. you can be for that thing or against that thing but cannot simultaneously be for that thing and against that thing not if we're supposed to take you seriously on poli
, and i hope that mr. priebus does advise mr. ryan, first and foremost, just to tell the truth, unlike what we've heard at the republican convention. i think the big thing with vice president biden is that he speaks from his heart. he is an earthy guy. he grew up in scranton. of course, represented the state of delaware for a long, long period of time. and i think -- i haven't talked to him, and i didn't see the clip live, but i think all he was really trying to communicate is that the middle class has had some rough times. he is honest about that. progress has been made. i heard you talking earlier, of course, about the jobs numbers. 40 straight months of job growth in the private sector. unemployment now down 7.8%. that's about what it was when president obama came into office in january of 2009. vice president biden is the real deal. he will give it to you straight. communicates in a way that i think connects with people at a real level. >> do you expect him to because there's a lot of democrats out there looking at the president's performance thinking he did poorly that is hoping t
that line of questioning here for mr. ryan was understandable. maybe even predictable. but beyond the newsworthiness of paul ryan getting up and taking off his microphone and ending the interview and beyond the newsworthiness of the campaign going after this reporter, there was what that reporter was able to elicit from paul ryan. there's his prescription for what it takes to get out of poverty if you live in the inner city. >> the best thing to help prevent violent crime in the inner cities is to bring opportunity in the inner cities, help people get out of poverty, help teach people good discipline, good character. >> are all people who are poor only poor because they have not been taught good character? or only poor people in the inner cities who are poor because they don't have good character? they don't have good discipline, they need to be taught that. you watching at home, do you not make a lot of money? was there a time you didn't have a lot of money? is that because you have bad character? if i were the romney/ryan campaign i would probably try to trash that reporter too.
policies, and i thought mr. ryan did his best, but he talked about big ideas and things with no detail. i think whether it was about war, whether it was about taxes, believing we need to really -- the wealthiest in this country need to pay a higher share so we can get middle class tax release. it was very clear to me. i think that's what the voters will have heard tonight. >> i want to go back to the abortion issue one more time. there was another distinction i think came up. mitt romney now says that he would favor some kind of exception for -- in terms of abortion policy when it comes to rape or incest. paul ryan seemed to say, no, a a pregnancy is a pregnancy. >> that's exactly what he said. it's very hard for women to trust mitt romney. i feel like he has taken every different position. even this week we've heard him take about three different poxes on this. tonight i think mr. ryan made it very clear. they believe government and legislators should make decisions that women should make themselves. >> what's your reaction to what we've seen in some polls that indicate a closing of the
the stage last night. >> now you're jack kennedy. >> as he went on offense against paul ryan. >> joe was definitely joe. >> it's about time they take some responsibility here. >> i'm not into man fights. >> mr. ryan said last night to governor romney was a car guy. well, if they had an elevator stack i guess he was. >> today the campaigning continues the post debate campaigning has already kicked into high gear. >> we're going to level the playing field. it's time to acknowledge what got us into this trouble in the first place. >> the vice president defends the status quo. >> that's a bunch of ma larky. the. >> paul ryan care about each and every american. >> stop caring about how you care about people. show me something. >> the table is now reset. >> with the v.p. debate now over. >> who gets to hit the panic button next? >> with 25 days until the presidential election, the obama re-election campaign is seizing on this statement by paul ryan in last night's debate. >> if the romney/ryan ticket is elected, should those who believe that abortion should remain legal be worried? >> we d
playing the role of paul ryan for the purpose of practice. in mr. ryan's debate practices the role of vice president joe biden is being played by celebrated conservative attorney and former george w. bush solicitor general ted olson. ted olson is not your average former bush administration official. he is the former bush administration official who's been leading the legal effort to overturn california's ban on gay marriage and maybe every state's ban on gay marriage. he is very, very, very, very conservative. but he is on the pro gay side of this marriage fight. today at nyu's law school i got a chance to interview ted olson and his cocounsel the celebrated democratic attorney david boyce. they fought against each other in bush v. gore in the 2000 election but they are fighting together on the side of marriage equality in this federal case. and ted olson is the one of course who sticks out like a sore thumb here. he's a straight, married guy. he does not have a gay family member who has driven him to this decision. he has decided as a small government republican stalwart that marriage equ
the vice president appears to be doing is by interrupting him is an attempt to throw mr. ryan off stride because it's difficult to maintain that logical progression if someone keeps interrupting you. and he was successful in a couple of occasions. i have to give credit to paul for coming back and recovering very -- >> it was a cool hand look and he saw this coming and he stayed on his path. that was my take, too. let's go to another one. the whole benghazi incident which started at the beginning of the debate which i, just my personal view. take a look at this. i think this was the turning point in the whole debate. here it is. >> there were no protests. >> we were told by the intelligence community. they told us that as they learned more facts about exactly what happened and they changed their assessment and that's why there's also an investigation headed by tom pickering, a leading diplomat from the reagan years as to whether or not there were any lapses and what the lapses were so that it will never happen again. >> they wanted more security there. >> we weren't told, we wanted more s
campaigns are claiming victory. >> mr. ryan said that governor romney was a car guy. if they have an elevator stacked on their couch, i guess he was. >> there was one person on stage who was thought full, respect l respectful, steady and poised, the kind of person you want to turn to in a crisis and that was the next vice president of the united states, paul ryan. i see these obama rallies and they're chanting four more years. our cheer is four more weeks. >> guys, i have to say, that was easily my most favorite debate of the season so far. i think biden was the clear winner, gave democrats the shot of energy they needed, hammered them on the 47%, hammered him on lying, said the facts matter. the moment where they talked about abortion was so destructive because ryan said i'm going to make you all do what i believe in my catholic doctrine and biden said, hey, i believe this, i respect catholic doctrine but i'll let you do what you want to do and made the case that the supreme court is in the balance. but one of the things that i like -- i noticed that ryan can't explain any of th
-sponsorship with todd akin? is that included? mr. romney said today under duress that the romney/ryan position is the romney/ryan position, there's no difference between them. and he said you'll hear more about it at the vice presidential debate tomorrow. i bet you will. joining us now is steve kornacki, co-host of "the cycle." thanks for being here. >> thanks for having me. >> the democrats have been aggressive in driving their campaigning on this issue, because they think that's a key issue for locking up the women's vote. with this walkback, this attempted and failed walkback that happened within the last 24 hours from the romney campaign, do you think that's going to have an impact there? >> yeah. there's some interesting data that came out in the last few days which i think is what was initially behind what mitt romney said, taking a more moderate position on abortion. first you had this poll that came out in ohio, showing obama ahead of romney by four. the gender gap in this thing was astounding. among men, romney had a 16-point lead in ohio. among women, 60-38, obama. that is like a 38-
, then writes the government to ask them to send us money. so that's congressman ryan from last night. as for mr. biden, he got tangled in foreign policy, specifically the libya killings. martha raddatz grilling him on security shortcomings in the administration's initial claim that the deadly attack was likely a spontaneous reaction to that anti-muslim youtube clip. >> why did that go on for weeks? >> what we were told -- >> by whom? >> by the intelligence community. the intelligence community told us that. as they learned more facts about what happened they changed their assessment. that's why there's also an investigation headed by tom pickering, a leading diplomat from the reagan years who is doing an investigation as to whether or not there are any lapses, what the lapses were, so they will never happen again. >> they wanted more security there. s >> we weren't told they wanted more security. >> keeping them honest, there is now sworn testimony that the request was, in fact, made. the former regional security officer in libya second from the left there, telling a congressional committee tha
ryan. they really went at it, especially biden. here he is, mr. fact check, joe biden, challenging congressman ryan on ryan's medice plan. >> this is a plan that is bipartisan. it is a plan i put together with a prominent democrat senator from oregon. >> there is not one democrat who endorses it. not one democrat who signed the plan. >> my partner is a democrat from oregon. >> he says he no longer supports your plan. >> we put it together with the former clinton budget director. >> and so it went. but now all of a sudden we have mitt romney checking joe biden's facts concerning the consulate attack in libya. and this is something you haven't yet heard. this is mitt romney speaking just a short time ago, here he is in richmond, virginia, you need to hear this. mitt romney. >> the vice president directly contradicted the sworn testimony of state department officials. he's doubling down on denial. and we need to understand exactly what happened. when the vice president of the united states directly contradicts the testimony, sworn testimony of state department officials, american citi
free press shows the president's lead shrinking to just three points in michigan. mr. obama had a ten point lead there last month. mitt romney's running mate, paul ryan, is in michigan tonight addressing a rally at oakland university in the town of rochester just outside detroit. the question tonight, if the mood of voters is changing here, could it also be a sign that it's changing in ohio as well, another key battleground state. the poll in the free press and the pew poll not the only good news for the romney forces. they got a big boost as well in gallup's tracking poll which shows a 47-47 tie among likely voters contacted on the 4th through the 6th. in pre-debate polling, mr. obama, president obama, led by five. as for today's pew poll, the obama campaign takes issue with the party makeup of people surveyed, saying it tilts republican compared to september. the romney campaign, on the other hand, says it's pleased with the numbers. joining us now, jim acosta with the romney campaign in newport news, virginia and on the phone, dan lothian with president obama's campaign. jim, you'r
